Engineering Dynamics is the leading Shaft Alignment Training Company in Africa by offering a 4 day Competency Certificate. The Compentency Course is aligned with the new ANSI standard for Shaft Alignment. Our Laser Alignment Training Courses will teach you hands-on skills to take back to your company. We have structured our material and practicals to allow everyone maximum time with the training rigs and our Easy-Laser Range of Instruments.

You can schedule a training course in Pretoria at our offices or we travel to you with our portable rigs - anywhere in Africa.

Shaft Alignment Training is done on a real world pump set and simulators. We simulate many of the real plant conditions with our simulators. A Competency Certificate using our Easy-Lasers is issued after repeatably aligning the equipment sucessfully to the set tolerances as found in industry. If you already have an Easy-Laser system or in the process of getting your own, then you are welcome on our courses.
